If you're looking to spend some quiet bonding time with your child, consider taking him (or her) to the Kid's Fishing Derby at Ascarate Lake.

The Ascarate Fishing Club is hosting the family fishing event this Saturday, Oct. 14. And a lack of fishing experience or gear isn't a problem, either.

Ascarate Fishing Club members will happily teach kids fishing basics, and fishing poles will be available for children to use during the event.

Lunch will be provided as well. Just take along a cap, sun screen, bug spray, water, and a camping chair or two and you're all set.

Although the Kid's Fishing Derby is a free event, there will be a $2.00 per vehicle fee to enter the park.

For more information visit the El Paso County Parks & Special Events on Facebook, or Ascarate Fishing Club.
